    All about the Sibiu Walking Tour.

    Built in the 12th century by German settlers known as Transylvanian Saxons, Sibiu’s pristine old town has retained its grandeur and is not just one of the prettiest towns in Romania, but perhaps in all Europe. It’s a pedestrian city, with an imposing medieval wall, well-preserved towers, narrow streets, gabled 17th century buildings, the infamous Liar’s Bridge, and two church-dominated squares – Great Square and Little Square.

     

     

    Little Square/ Piata Mica

    There’s something special about Sibiu – something that attracts you, makes you eager to discover it. It is town with such a rich history, built eight centuries ago by the Saxon colonists. Despite its hard, ruthless times the initial little village became a strong fortification, a big trade centre, a flourishing town during the Austro-Hungarian times and even a symbol of the fight against the totalitarian system during the Revolution in 1989.

    Due to the co-habitation in this area of different ethnic groups Sibiu became also an emblem of multiculturalism and inter-cultural relationships. In 2007 it became European Capital of Culture and in 2019 it was awarded the title of European Region of Gastronomy. Furthermore, my town was honoured to host in May 2019 the informal EU Summit.

    Depending whom you ask Sibiu might be described as a vibrant town, sometimes romantic and picturesque, a town full of personality that can listen to you and even talk to you. During our walk through the big squares, narrow passages or cobbled streets will approach various topics also adapted to your interest. It will be an interesting and, why not, fun visit!

    I booked a city walking tour online in advance & from the start Adela was in touch to confirm time & dates. 6 of us only had the weekend in Sibiu & Adela was the most awesome tour guide for our 2hour adventure. Adela met us at a cafe & then we had a quick Sibiu/Romania history chat before setting out to walk. The sun came out & Sibiu was shining in all its glory. Adela was so intuitive, knowledgeable, articulate & personable that we all commented how incredible she was & her care, honesty & enthusiasm for her job & Sibiu, made the tour a highlight of our short stay.
